There are only 16 days left for your opportunity to be selected for the 2023 Hellenbrand Lasting Legacy Award calf – a daughter from the 2021 Grand Champion Ayrshire Marilie Gentleman Karmina! This is an amazing opportunity to feed your passion, grow your potential in and out of the show ring, and to showcase a heifer with Karmina’s outstanding pedigree at local, state and national shows.
The purpose of the Hellenbrand Lasting Legacy Award (HLLA) is to provide an aspiring and deserving dairy youth a chance to own and show a high-end genetic heifer at local, district and state shows including World Dairy Expo.
The winner of the HLLA will receive 50% ownership in a September, December or March calf from a recent breed champion at the World Dairy Expo. The breed of the calf awarded is expected to rotate on an annual basis amongst all the dairy breeds. The 2022 award will be an Ayrshire heifer calf from the 2021 WDE Ayrshire Grand Champion Marilie Gentleman Karmina. The breeders, Budjon Farms and Peter Vail will provide the calf to the HLLA award winner for the 2023 show season.
The deadline to apply is January 1, 2023. Visit www.hellenbrandlastinglegacy.com for details and the application!
